Using this list of matches -> tipping/tournament/ plus some other fixtures (the south american 4 Naciones) we have the image below count of autumn test matches per nation. Aus, Nze, Saf and Arg could play the Championship, so Argentina could be the team with more fixtures on the belt. Japan has already declared to be not going to play any match until the new year; I've read no fixture news also about Samoa, Tonga, Usa and Canada

Argentina will be Argentina XV in the South American championship.

Veintidós claimed Uruguay and Spain were negotiating a couple of test matches, but a later report dismissed.

Hasn’t it been confirmed that there will be the rugby championship?

Australia confirmed as hosts, if it goes ahead. Apparently there's doubts over South African participation, and NZ are understandably unhappy about potentially having to miss Christmas with their families because of the isolation period when they return.

A pair of unexpected autumnal fixtures on World Rugby list https://www.world.rugby/fixtures

Oct 30 Canada v Usa in Vancouver
Oct 31 Fiji v NZ XV in Vancouver

Are these still going on or are these fixtures a forgotten "fossil" of the pre-pandemic schedule?

Canada's border is shut for all but essential travel. I know the NHL is playing out in Canada but I can't see either rugby game really, and especially the Fiji game being correct.

Maybe Fiji-Maoris could be droped, but USA-Canada could happen, at least without public. But, whithout public, would it worth?

USA rugby already said they won’t be playing any tests for the rest of the year. If I remember correctly it was a combination of COVID and fact they were in bankruptcy. I think Canada is also not planning to play any tests until 2021 as well.

I would like to see USA and Canada play a three tests series in the future. One game during the July window, the second during the ARC and one last test in November before they head over to Europe.

fiji game in canada unlikely to happen i think cause fiji names their squad that week and msot of the squad is from uk-france so traveling to canada is out of question..if this wasn't a pandemic year, it would have been a good game.
